The American Legal History Podcast - Episode Five: Medieval England and the Birth of the Common Law Part I

Episode Five: Medieval England and the Birth of the Common Law Part I

The American Legal History Podcast
In the first of two episodes we will explore the origins and growth of the common law in Medieval England. First, we will attempt the difficult task of defining the common law; then we will take a big picture view of English society in the 10th and 11th century, the feudal system and its influence on the common law. Next, we will look at the revolutionary judicial reforms of King Henry II in terms of criminal law and procedure. Lastly, we will see how a series of important laws paved the way for the introduction of the jury and writ system.
